This unique book is the culmination of the most advanced study to date on how coastal systems work. Based on a long-term, interdisciplinary study, this work takes an integrated ecosystem analysis of the eutrophication process - one of the most pressing problems in the environmental and marine sciences. This book provides a comprehensive and current assessment of marine eutrophication processes and details the response of estuarine and coastal systems to natural and anthropogenous nutrient loading.
